Ibrahimovic: Every Sweden player should get a Golden Ball
Zlatan Ibrahimovic thinks Sweden's players all deserve to be given a Golden Ball award for their efforts at the World Cup.
Sweden exited Russia 2018 on Saturday after a 2-0 loss to England, who will face Croatia for a place in the final of the tournament.
But Sweden over-achieved against expectations even without the services of Ibrahimovic, who was impressed with Janne Andersson's side.
"Every player should get a Golden Ball in Sweden," Ibrahimovic wrote on Twitter.
"What they did will be remembered forever. Thank you for the show."

Wayne Rooney - set to cross paths with the ex-Sweden international in MLS after joining DC United - was quick to tease his old Manchester United team-mate, though.
"How you feeling today mate @Ibra_official?" ex-England captain Rooney posted on Twitter.
"If you need a chat I'm always here."

Ibrahimovic has also lost a bet with another former United player, David Beckham, meaning he will have to watch an England game at Wembley with the ex-LA Galaxy star.
Beckham had promised to buy Ibrahimovic whatever he wanted from IKEA if Sweden triumphed in Samara.

It looks like he's heading to Wembley with David Beckham.
Get the #ENG shirt on order.
The fish and chips can probably wait, though...
